They wouldn’t like this Martin Luther, either, if they’d ever heard about him

University of Oregon debates removing MLK “Character quote” from his statue because it’s not inclusive enough.

Student leaders at the University of Oregon debated removing a quote from Martin Luther King Jr. from its student center, arguing that the quote was not inclusive enough for modern understandings of diversity.

Oregon’s Erb Memorial Union, which is currently under renovation, had the following famous King quote on the wall: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. I have a dream…”

But as renovation continues, the Oregon Student Union seriously considered replacing that quote. “The quote is not going to change,” reports student paper Oregon Daily Emerald, “but that decision was not made without some hard thought by the Student Union Board.”

The friggin’ racist is obviously guilty of violating the university’s ban on micro-aggression.

    Dude –

    Is not this Martin Luther to whom you refereth, IN FACT the creator of the pagan Waspy Wasp “religion”? To which you clingeth? The medieval troublemaker who was not happy with His Popiness, and decided to rabble rouse the peasants and serfs to breaketh awayeth from the only true religion? Who also didn’t trust the Jews and the Slums? YESETH I SAYETH!! HIM THAT BEITH!!

    Is he related to Martin Luther King? Is that the tie in you are trying to maketh? I just don’t see it. Because they are both named Luther? Mustest that be iteth? NAY I SAYETH!! MLK was a peaceful man, not at all uppity like Martin Luther. King didn’t want to be a king, whereas Luther – the Martin oneth – wanted power, and a religion with no rules, where he was the HNIC. So he formed the Waspy Wasps, an elite group that worships money, social status, country clubs, and for some unknown reason, cling to the belief that there blood is blueth.

    I think that pretty mucheth sums it upeth. Did I leave any historical facts out? Fell free to comment or edith.

    Your Pal,
    Walt

    No, Walt. That was the guy who got in trouble for putting a bunch of feces on a church door.

  3. Walt, are you using Douay-Rheims or King James English?

    MLK should be swept into the dustbin of history along with those slave owners Jefferson and Washington. He was, afterall, a serial adulterer. Lack of perfection by current standards is inexcusable!
